Who Is Big Sean?
From the land of pimps and players comes the self-proclaimed swaggerific, Big Sean.
Coming out of Detroit, Big Sean isn't new to the rap game, he's just... finally famous. After having met Kanye as a senior in high school, Big Sean impressed Yeezy enough to be signed to G.O.O.D. Music in 2007 and then followed up with a deal from Def Jam in 2008. A mixtape triology later, and his debut album Finally Famous set to drop at later this year, Big Sean has left a carbon footprint on the game big enough to take over the swaggersphere and challenge freshmen emcees near and far.
Pound chopped it up with Big Sean for his first Canadian tour at Stussy/Ransom Clothing Co. to discuss politics, poetics of rhymin' and pocket squares.
